- Middle Korean nouns ending in /-m/ are often substantives of verbs, but the only relevant verb is 보다〮 (Yale: pwò-tá, “to see”), which seems semantically unrelated.
- Some online sources claim a connection to the element 봄 (Yale: pwom) in the Middle Korean compound verb 봄놀다 (Yale: pwom-nwolta, “to romp; to spring about in play”), whose second element is 놀〯다〮 (Yale: nwǒltá, “to play”). If valid, the semantics would be similar to English spring. It is not clear whether this has been suggested in academia.
- However, it appears more likely that 봄 (Yale: pwom) is an allomorph of *봅 (Yale: pwop), nasalized by the following /n/; compare ablaut variant 붑괴다 (Yale: pwup-kwoyta, “to seethe”).
- It has been tentatively proposed that this is an ancient pre-Sino-Korean borrowing from Old Chinese 芃 (, “luxuriant growth (of foliage)”). *[b]ˤ[o]m
